What a lovely hotel, it is scattered over a few buildings. The room we had was ample and clean, with a balcony overlooking the Mekong River from across the road. The breakfast is taken riverside, just a beautiful location! Loved the way the fresh bread is toasted, over a barrel of hot charcoal! Thanks to the manager, Mr Thongdam, and all the staff for making our visit a memorable one. The hotel is about 5 minutes walking distance to the main street, where there are plenty of restaurants, pubs, fruit vendors, and markets! There are plenty of massage places too. We walked over the bamboo bridge, about a 10 minute walk from the hotel, and then over the old French bridge. Luang Prabang is a beautiful town, and staying at this hotel, you are in the heart of it all!

main building was once the presidents palace situated beside the Mekong river and breakfast is served across the road from the building over looking the river - very nice breakfast, toast bbq on a barrel. Within walking distance of night market, museum, mt phousi and bamboo bridges plus water taxis. Comfortable room in annex. Staff really helpful and lovely keen to practice their English and interesting to talk to re culture of Laos

We stayed here 3 nights. It is in a great location ...by the Mekong River and a few blocks away from the Main Street...so we walked everywhere. The hotel itself is fairly basic...the furnishings are worn, the bed is hard like a rock and the bathroom is average at best (shower is a little sketchy). The breakfast is also the same...little options by nice to eat near the river. Having said all that...the staff were all very nice and accommodating. We stayed as part of a tour, so I admit I don’t know how much it is to stay there....so price could be commensurate with the average rating.

This hotel has several buildings that branch out from the main building. Each building sits either on the same street as, or adjacent street behind, the main building. Think of it as several guest houses that are run by the same owner. Each building has its own reception attendant, who recognizes you and greets you warmly whenever you come in or leave. Given the physical set up, it feels more like staying at your grandmother's house than at a hotel. On the bright side, the buildings retain the classic Laotian style of architecture, including the charming exteriors and indoor furnitures. The rooms are clean and contain modern conveniences such as a/c, fridge and coffee/tea making set, safe, and a shower with good water pressure. Breakfast is included and serves basic needs. The staff are friendly and seem genuinely interested in learning about you as a person and telling you about Luang Prabang. On the down side, if you need help from the staff, you would need to go to your building's attendant in person, as there is no phone in the room. For more complex matters, such as unlocking your safe, the staff from the main building would have to come over and help you (this happened to me when the previous guest left the safe locked upon checking out). Rest assured that the staff are very nice and quick to help. Still, it is an additional step that some may find quirky in this digital age. Depending on the room you stay, the noise level can range from serene to maddening. I stayed in a corner back room in the Vanida building, which was very private in both window view and noise level. There was active construction going on in the building next door, but I heard very little from my room. The Vanida building faces 2 busy temples, which I overhead monks chanting their noon and evening prayers as I walked by. I found it very peaceful, but others might feel differently if their room face the temples as well as the construction site. During my stay, the most noise I heard was from hotel guests who liked to shout to their friends staying on the same floor and leave their doors open with blasting music. So the insulation is a bit thin and can get annoying at times when fellow guests are too loud. The hotel is located within short walking distance to key temples, royal palace museum, restaurants, and night market. Banks with counter service and ATMs are also close by. A large supermarket is also within a 20 minute walk. The central location makes it easy for sightseeing and taking care of basic travel needs. Overall, a cozy and comfortable hotel if you like a mix of old world and modern charms.
